Free Summer Lunch Program

Summer should be full of “fun in the sun” kind of days, but, for many families this can be a stressful time of year having to worry about how they are going to feed their families. The extra cost of breakfast and lunch that may typically be free through reduced or free meals during the school year adds up fast and can get very expensive.  Some children sadly go without a nutritious meal on a daily basis. That’s why there’s a federally funded program called, The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) , which was created to ensure that children in lower income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations.

I have gathered a list of participating locations in Lenawee County. All Children 18 years of age and younger are eligible and there’s no registration required. All locations include free lunch with some offering breakfast and or snacks.
